"Incarnate (Three Degrees of Certainty II)" would also make a pretty solid title for an 18-minute-long stoner metal track.

Does he carve skulls because his name is Maskull?

Also I don't know how you can be in the room with that and not be compelled to loosen the vice and watch it all fall apart

Gotta be some good use for Norton Utilities materials.

Apparently, this is it.

Employer: "So you say you've got all those manuals in your head?"

Maskull: "What I actually said was that I've got my head in all those manuals."

I have always wondered who the Dang were. Now we have one of their skulls. I want to see the video of the page turner.

Extra credit if one of those manuals is for BBEdit

This is so great. And I kind of love that the skull isn't facing head-on, but sort of...nestling? cheek-rubbing? one side.

Hunh.
Do his skulls come with a headache?

Because (poorly written*) computer manuals were always a complete headache for my skull.

*name one that wasn't

Computer manuals were a stealth weight training program for nerds.

All his stuff is amazing, I found it somewhere on Twitter. The one that resonated the most for me, besides the skull (which I am still marvelling over, how you can carve a book like that) is this piano.

Does he want more backbreaker and superannuated computer books? Because, uh, I uh, I know a guy.

Keep looking around on his website - you'll find the quarter-size replica of the Taj Mahal carved out of AOL disks...

What the hell is in a Internet Explorer 4 manual? If the pages were soft and absorbent it might be good in the bathroom in an emergency. This is the only other thing I can think of doing with it.

It's a firestarter for a freezing post-apocalyptic future.

Generally, the thicker the computer manual, the worse it is.
